Five Stars For An Outstanding Stabber.-
All I can say about this product is 'Excellent, mr. Thompson'. I agree with you, Alex. First one I bought seemed to pierce through everything softer than its own blade material, which makes me think about its potential in a stoccata movement. Its slashing potential is more known to me. You see, only a couple weeks after giving it to a friend of mine as a present, he was so unfortunate to need to put it in action... fending for himself in front of two armed street-scum attackers. OK, this guy is an expert in some Martial Arts, but not in knife fighting- and two knifes pointing at his body were enough for him to justify some kind of 'extreme defense'. In order not to mention the crudest details, in only two angles he eventually saw himself without his TiLite, but at a painfully higher price for those thugs. In his words, 'It was as if I was cutting air'. It has been three years from then. They lived, for if it's worth telling, and he hasn't heard about them yet. Guess what? My friend didn't stop until he could afford another TiLite 4". He wanted no other folder, and that was final. Fair enough for me. Swift, effective and simple. It's been tested in a brawl, it's proved to be an tremendous backup, it's the choice for you if you care not for a huge knife, and even closed is a stupendous kubotan.
